Qualcomm Incorporated, a provider of business-to-business wireless enterprise applications and services, announced the addition of the Analytics Manager service to the Qualcomm Transportation Services suite.

The new service will offer fleets a holistic view of driving performance to help carriers run their businesses more efficiently and safely, the company says. The Analytics Manager will provide a critical-event reporting dashboard, driver safety reports and scorecards, as well as key industry benchmarking. The service is expected to be available on multiple Qualcomm platforms this fall.

“All sizes of fleets can benefit from the Analytics Manager service, but especially smaller fleets that typically cannot afford to build their own,” said Norm Ellis, vice president of sales, services and marketing at Qualcomm Enterprise Services.

Reports planned for the Analytics Manager service include:

Critical Events Dashboard – outlines fleet-wide safety trends captured with the Critical Event Reporting service

Driver Scorecard – incorporates data from Hours of Service, Critical Event Reporting, and Performance Monitoring services to assist with CSA 2010 compliance

Industry Benchmarks – pulls data from multiple services and shows how a carrier’s fleet measures against averages for key performance indicators such as fuel consumption, idle time, overspeeding and hard braking

Qualcomm also announced Maptuit’s NaviGo Fuel and NaviGo Hazmat add-ons to its NaviGo In-Cab Navigation service on the Mobile Computing Platform (MCP) 100 and 200 Series. The two NaviGo add-ons offer additional functionality to help fleets control costs and improve routing. NaviGo Fuel provides information on fuel stations and their associated fuel prices within a customer-configurable radius or corridor along the truck’s route. Search results are returned based on the fuel stops’ proximity to the vehicle’s current location.

In addition to selecting which fuel data feed they would like to use, customers also have the option of leveraging their own custom fuel network, which helps improve efficiency in managing fuel plans and fuel costs.

With NaviGo Hazmat routing service, the driver is routed using a hazmat trunk network consisting of only Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) roads. Within the route, known hazmat-forbidden roads are circumnavigated based on the criteria for specified hazardous material. This helps ensure fleet compliance with Department of Transportation regulations. Maptuit’s NaviGo is a near real-time, hybrid in-cab navigation solution that uses both on-board and server-based computing power to provide accurate maps and truck safe routes.
